Dinesh Karthik smashed 83 off 35 deliveries during his stay at the crease.

Dinesh Karthik hammered the biggest six of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 thus far in the recent match between his side Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on April 15, 2024.

RCB captain Faf du Plessis had won the toss and chose to chase. However, he wouldn’t have thought in his nightmares that his decision would lead to multiple IPL and T20 records being broken.

Abhishek Sharma (34) and Travis Head scored 108 runs for the first wicket in 8.1 overs. After Sharma exited, Head went into high gear. Head hit his first IPL century, scoring 102 in 41 balls with 8 sixes and 9 fours with a strike rate of 248.78.

Heinrich Klaasen continued his rampage, scoring 67 in 31 balls with seven sixes and two fours. Aiden Markram (32* in 17) and Abdul Samad (37* in 10) helped SRH reach 287/3 in 20 overs.

Sunrisers’ 287 for 3 is now the second-highest T20 total, trailing Nepal’s 314 for 3 against Mongolia in 2023. Not only that, but four RCB bowlers scored fifty runs or more in their four overs, with Reece Topley yielding 68 and Vijaykumar Vyshak leaking 64.

Dinesh Karthik smokes T Natarajan for a 108m six

RCB began their chase with equal disdain as Virat Kohli (42 in 20) and Faf du Plessis added 80 runs in just 6.2 overs. Du Plessis continued the assault, scoring 62 in 28 balls with 7 fours and 4 sixes to his name.

However, SRH hit back with quick wickets in the middle overs to leave SRH at 122/5 in 10 overs. But then Dinesh Karthik took over and tried his best to keep RCB in the hunt. He scored a half-century and his knock contained the biggest six of not only this match but also of the IPL 2024 thus far.

The bowler was T Natarajan, whose first ball of the 16th over was smoked by Karthik on the leg side. The ball hit the roof and came back down into the ground and the distance was seen as 108 meters.
